a duo of instrumental didgeridoo, guitar and fiddle music


Ochre is James T Webb on didgeridoo and sticks, and Erik Kowarski on guitar and violin.  The music is an organic blend of aboriginal and western cultures, full of imagery inspired by the many landscapes of the Australian bush.  Some pieces have distinct melodic themes, while others are driven by powerful rhythms.

Erik Kowarski is a multi-instrumentalist with a wide variety of influences from Australian and Celtic folk and blues through to electric and electronic music.  Classically trained on violin, Erik is also a guitarist and songwriter.  His melodies and chords explore the various moods expressed by the didgeridoo and echo their sentiment.

James T Webb is one of WA's foremost didgeridoo players, embracing both traditional and non-traditional elements in his dynamic playing style.  His dance group, Wadumbah, travels both within Australia and internationally presenting Aboriginal culture to schools, tourist venues and concert halls as well as corporate functions.

Ochre’s material is suited to corporate functions with an Australian theme, community events, ceremonies and private functions.  Their unique sound has broad-based appeal which has seen an enthusiastic response to their performances.
